    The truth is much more mundane. This coin is part of a seven-coin set issued in 1985 to commemorate the travels of Pope John Paul II. A presentation case is pictured below, taken from http://www.vaticancoins.com/coin/1175/1985_Vatican_Mint_Set_7_Coins_BU/

    The Italian text reads:

    i.e. "Theme: The travels of His Holiness John Paul II".

    The explanatory text on the website states:

    I found a better picture of the presentation set here, although it only shows the obverse ("heads" side) of the coins:

    I guess this should go in the Pre 1995 Persistent Contrails Archive

    The coin is already in there, but buried on page 9, so I thought it was worth making a post that's easier to find.
